Only 10 years old; great location close to Union Square, Chinatown, Financial District and North Beach. Really clean rooms and pretty solid bathroom setup. Barn door on bathroom is not great for couples privacy.

Great little hotel next to the Dragon Gate. Pros: extra comfy bed, quiet rooms, turn down service, friendly and helpful staff, great location, valet parking, and free chocolate at the front desk. Cons: smaller rooms, as one may expect in downtown SF.

We were travelling for the first time with our 5 month old son, so we wanted everything to go as smooth as possible. Everything at our hotel met our expectations; the location is excellent, the staff is very friendly and the hotel was quiet and tidy. I would definitely recommend this hotel to friends and family.

Checking in and out was quick and efficient, the room was clean and well appointed. The bed was very comfortable! My only complaint is that the windows didn't open, so we had to rely on the vent to circulate the air. Unfortunately, it blew right over the bed, which was very unpleasant, so we had to turn it off in... More

Prime location (near Chinatown and Union Square) and spacious room. Friendly and helpful staff. However, they do not provide complimentary water to guests which is really elementary - one bottle of water costs about USD3.

This hotel is right next to the China Gate into China Town. 3 blocks from Union Square, 2 blocks from the Bush Street on/off for the cable cars to Fisherman's Wharf or Ghiradelli Square and reasonably priced. Room clean and well appointed... what more can you really want!

My husband and I go to San Francisco frequently to visit our son. This was the first time that we stayed at the Orchard Garden. The room was nice, the friendliness and service was even better. We always enjoy a walk through China Town which made to location of the hotel very convenient for us.
